We’re only days away from the start of La Liga and Serie A and a final chance for FC Barcelona and AC Milan to warm up for the start of their respective campaigns.
It’s also the annual opportunity for Barca to showcase their summer signings, although it doesn’t appear that Javier Mascherano will arrive in time from Liverpool to play any part.
Even so, Pep Guardiola’s team are red-hot favourites at 8/15 (William Hill) to win this match and they have been looking great during their other pre-season friendlies.
Barca recently beat FC Sevilla to win the Super Cup, with Lionel Messi making up for his World Cup disappointment by scoring a hat-trick during his team’s 4-0 second leg victory. The striker is 4/1 (Ladbrokes) to open the scoring.
New signing David Villa will also be on show and he’s 9/2 with bet365 to open the scoring against Italian opposition. The striker is going to be a wonderful addition for the Spanish champions who hope to finish ahead of Jose Mourinho’s Real Madrid next term.
Milan are 11/2 with bet365 to win the Joan Gamper trophy and they now have Ronaldinho in their ranks, a player who was a hit success at the Nou Camp for several seasons.
